Online is a no way to communicate

On-line relationship is creating a distance in our relationships in day to day life…. Loneliness… touch … no hugs … no warmth…. There are few moments in our lives that make us really feel something, and those moments are to be dearly enjoyed is not it ?

I agree. I would prefer to wait for a month to go out for lunch rather than showing expressing love online. Deep conversations, hugs mean a lot to me rather than typing a few words in front of some other people. Makes no sense at all.

I would disagree and say that it is the online media that helps us being in touch – specially in long distance relationships. For instance if you stay in different cities, Facebook and WhatsApp helps you stay connected to one another – using voice messages, sharing selfies, and emojis. Of course you can meet up once a week for the real hugs that help you receive the warmth that is missing in the virtual ones.

When you are separated from your loved ones, the internet is the fastest thing bringing you closer. But the sadder part is when you choose to dwell more on the internet than spending that time with your dear ones.

As much as I agree with the said thought, I feel there is a different perspective that needs to be assessed. Majority of the cases, distance is a factor not self-created by individuals. Due to education or work purpose people may need to migrate. In such scenario, will he or she stop loving? Absolutely not.

Various chat modes, both, text and video based, are useful. What’s most critical in any relationship is communication as much as warmth of physical touch.
A classic example that can be used here are marriages, where couples maybe married for 2 or 20 or more years sharing the same roof and same bed yet they are distant from each other.

Yes! I agree! This entire online thing is making us like robots. no wonder we all need psychiatric help these days! We need to have face t face coffee…need to see people and not think our response for a 100 times before we respond!
